For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only begotten Son, that who ever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.John 3:16 (KJV)
For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God's abundant provision of grace! Romans 5:17 (NIV)
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:17
